Historically shunned but acknowledged more and more every year by car markers is the inevitable fact car accidents happen. Following VW's most recent entry with its dramatic crash ads comes this work (one, two) by Team One and visual effects company A52 for Lexus in which an interesting approach is taken to illustrate the ability of Lexus vehicles to help you avoid accidents. Each of the two spots takes a reverse look at an accident and, through a set change, takes us from the accident to a world in which the accident never occurs.
Recently, the Danish Road Safety Council took a similar but more dramatic approach with a couple ads that reverse the filming of an actual accident. The Lexus campaign imagines a world without accidents/injury because cars are designed to be safer. The Road Safety Council imagines the same thing but by urging people to drive more safely. Each uses trauma to illustrate trauma doesn't have to occur in the first place.
Leaving all political correctness to cause groups with nothing to do but bitch about every possible human activity and opinion, this new campaign from Cleveland agency Brokaw for Horton Crossbow, refreshingly, minces no words selling its article of death. With witty slaps in the face like "Hunters really aren't so different from other environmentalists. We just like to keep souvenirs" and "Sometimes the best way to clear your head is to bring one back to mount on the wall," the campaign isn't likely to be well-loved by PETA, the Humane Society or the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. We do, however, think Charlton Heston would get a kick out of it.

According to this video, America is hated the world over for its leadership, its moral authority, its declining economy and its trashy culture. Apparently, even Mother Nature hates America. But, America still reigns supreme in one area and that one area is the subject of a new documentary film hitting screens at the end of March. The film? Watch the video to find out. Telling you now would spoil the fun.
To promote its second annual Bugzhibitz show, an exotic bug event that runs March 9th-18th, the Toronto Zoo puts Jeb, a Hissing Cockroach from Madagascar, in the spotlight to do the talking.
Bugs Rock highlights Jeb's adventures from the Wild Wild ... wild, to ascendance as a star (complete with a music video) at the zoo.
With all these brand personas floating around we'd really like to see an icon face-off. Nothing against the hissing cockroach, but we wonder how long he could hang with the Geico Gecko.
A new campaign for Australia Post takes a look at every day of the week, each of those day's traits and how Australia Post works for Australians every day. In fact, its tagline is "Part of Every Day." Of course, Monday is the worst but Australia Post says it's there to make the day easier. Who new the post office could be so helpful? View all seven spots here in one video.
New Belgium, the source of our beloved Fat Tire Ale, kicks off a campaign toting "the sustainable side of whimsical [read: alcohol-soaked] living."
Denver's Cultivator Advertising and Design create Follow Your Folly, guiding jovial beer lovers to an interactive Wonderland promoting sustainability with bare-assed but enviro-friendly efforts like Save Our Rivers. Tagged "Follow your folly. Ours is beer," a featured beer appears in each promotion.
It merits noting that even before Google got all extra-extra with their bike-riding culture and alternative energy hype, New Belgium was already laying the groundwork. They were also the first brewery to switch to wind-power in 1999, and employees ride bikes or walk to work. With careful recycling, reuse and composting methods, only 2% of their waste becomes landfill.
Follow Your Folly looks to us like great marketing in harmony with the socially responsible values of a good company. Even if some people don't care about environmentally responsible corporate conduct, we sorta do. After all, beer is nature's nectar.
With asymmetrical seams (sewn by hand ye old indentured way) and copper rivets, Levi's Copper jeans allegedly hark back to the first jeans ever. To promote this hat-tip to history, Ogilvy One, Singapore also takes a nod backward with a pure HTML-written site.
Using archaic inconvenience to promote user interactivity, oversized imagery elicits scrolling in all directions. Copper trivia pops out of the dirt in old-school info windows and facts on the jeans appear in drop-down menus starkly interspersed across the huge denim-and-dirt backdrop. The usability and aesthetic annoyances that come with vintage web design nipped more than once, but we dig the creative effort.
If you're so inspired that another day without Copper jeans will kill you, print out a life-sized PDF to try on. We've never worn PDF before and we can't wait to show all our friends.
Thanks to Richard Ho of AdCritic.com for the Levi's Copper info.
When in television, it goes without saying you might run into some odd policy meant in some way to protect you from The People or The People from you.
This is exactly what Conan discovered when he joked in passing about the existence of HornyManatee.com on air. An irate NBC called to let him know he can't just mention a site that doesn't exist, and now they have to purchase HornyManatee.com.
So that's exactly what they did. And instead of just redirecting it to NBC per the quid pro quo, they thought, why not pull out all the stops? The results make a good ice-breaker and they even managed to tie it to a cause, because you know how much people love cause-oriented consumerism.
Take the fetish tour for a complete manatee explosion.
That was disgusting. Forget we said that. In other news, and this is totally off-topic, we just found out that right whales have testes that weigh over one ton. HornyWhale.com, anybody? Wow, we've totally succeeded in grossing ourselves out. This is a new high. Or low.
Calling attention to the nastiness of the Holocaust for the University of Colorado, Boulder's Holocaust Awareness Week, is starkly dark campaign, created by TDA Advertising & Design, that reminds us of the horrors that time brought. From freakish experiments on the body to pressure chamber torture to showers of gas, bulletin board postings, door knob hangers and shower hangers slap students in the face with this message of remembrance. A radio spot featuring a sickly twisted fairly tale accompanies the campaign. There's nothing pretty about this campaign and that's as it should be.
See the campaign components here and listen to the radio spot here.
We like these stylized print ads that are part of a new campaign for Asics footwear. We like the photographic effect and the attention it commanded when found browsing thorough the sea of fashion ad sameness in the March issue of GQ. The campaign pits you against a running partner who's either your alter ego, a Harvard sculling team, a man you will never meet or your friendly dog who interupts your run with his morning business. See all four ads here.
